FINALLY. Lost Girl is back. I can practically hear the fandom's sigh of relief.
So how did the season premiere fare this time? Let me summarize for you.
We start with everyone's favourite human, Kenzi, (sorry, Lauren fans), rolling out from underneath a super cool pick-up truck, of course.
|Ksenia Solo, still cute as ever.
Obviously Kenzi is saved from the wrath of a dark Fae male by everyone's least favourite cock-block, Dyson (Kris Holden-Reid) and Hale (KC Collins). But only after she proves to the unnamed Fae that she is not human.
|What the hell? Kenzi is Fae now?
Cut to Bo (Anna Silk's) and Kenzi's apartment and... Wait, WHAT?
|Ew. Ew. No. This is wrong.
The mind fuck continues as the pair of them have clearly got no memory of Bo even existing. Can someone unscramble this mystery now? My brain hurts.
Aaand cue plot twist! Aoife, Bo's biological Mother, turns up at the door.
|Who cares how old this woman is? LOOK at her.
Aoife explains to the pair of them that parts of their memories have been erased when she shows them a weird-ass blemish in her eye.
Enter Trick (Rick Howland) talking some more about The Una Mens (who?) and advising Kenzi to go see some eye guy named Snook. Or Snuck. Snooki? Anyway, he looks like this:
|Little bit gross, little bit annoying. You get the picture.
Kenzi returns to Trick, who imparts some knowledge. He tells her to restore their memories they have to find some compass. Apparently the name of said compass flies over Kenzi's head too, as she names it "Ricky Martin". That will do. Not sure how the compass fixes things but there ya go.
Next up, ah, the return of Vex (Paul Amos). Love him. Hate him... Love to hate him.
|The original sass-master at work.
As Dyson and Hale enter a nightclub to find the compass, Kenzi (after leaving a quick, heartfelt voicemail for Dr. Lauren (Zoie Palmer) on her cell phone), is accompanied by some guy who rubs magic fairy dust into her shoulders. So THAT's where she's getting her Fae powers from.
|And the award for creepiest dude of the season goes to...
And what better way to impress than via Argentine Tango? You'll see...
Just when you're about to see Kenzi and Hale hit the dancefloor, WHOA hello Mia Kirshner.
|Sorry, having L Word flashbacks.
Anyway, here's a snippet from the tango, including Dyson getting so jealous that Hale is dancing with Kenzi that he once again cockblocks and joins in.
Kenzi scores a rose, which means a visit to George Takei. Oh, I should also mention that he's a snake and he wants to eat Kenzi.
|Do I get bonus points for this awesome screen cap?
Back in the party room, everyone's fleeing because Vex has arrived. Yes, he may have forced a woman to snap her own neck, but he also arrived wearing killer heels. And who can't appreciate a man who can do a cartwheel in 6 inchers?
|Vex, giving FrankNFurter a run for his money.
Basically, he declares himself the new leader of the Dark Fae, Dyson and Hale stop him from causing too much chaos, and they find out that Vex has also lost all memory of Bo ever existing.
Oddly though, Tamsin (Rachel Skarsten) is only mentioned once throughout the entire episode... WHERE ARE OUR LADIES?!
Dyson saves Kenzi from George "The Snake" Takei and in some random back alley, it's Trick and Aoife!
|Aoife loses her memory... and becomes nice? What?
Aoife greets Trick with a sincere "Hi, Daddy" (aww), until Dyson and Kenzi realign the Ricky Martin compass and everyone's memory is restored! Not such a great thing though, as Aoife goes back to being a royal bitch. Why? Also a mystery.
The good news is, Dyson and Kenzi instantly remember Bo. Bazinga. Hit the jackpot.
Cut to the unidentified box from the beginning of the episode and... Is that Dr. Lauren? She's a redhead? Her name is Amber?
|Lauren/Amber finally remembers her darling. Yay!
One last thing...
|We know those eyes anywhere.
Looks like Bo is awake! Not sure where she is, and I am suddenly realizing that the settings for most of Lost Girl are kind of ambiguous.
And that concludes our first recap! Did I miss anything? What did you enjoy about the season premiere? Let us know in the comments!
